Rangers vs Bruins Over/Under Pick: Over 5.5 Goals (-120)

Boston’s offense has been on a roll at home, averaging 4.4 goals a game, and it should be able to continue that when the Rangers come to town. New York has given up four or more goals in three of its last four games, allowing 3.2 goals a game in its last five. However, the Rangers have been scoring as well, going 3.6 goals a game in their last five.

Neither expected starting goalie has been playing up to their level. Boston’s Jeremy Swayman has a .868 save percentage, allowing 3.33 goals in his last three games. Igor Shesterkin has a .875 save percentage and has given up the same amount of goals in the same amount of time for New York.

With both offenses keeping up the scoring pace and the goalies faltering, the over should be a good bet here.

 

 

Rangers vs Bruins Player Prop Pick: Pavel Zacha At Least One Assist (+150)
